Woodland Fairy & Friends (Sawyer's 1st Birthday)

Sawyer's 1st birthday was a Woodland Fairy & Friends themed party. I set the cupcakes up like this just to get a shot before I packed them up for the party. They way Valerie had everything displayed at the party was much cuter, but I'm lame and forgot to get a picture. I also forgot to get a picture of the chocolated pretzels. Maybe when she posts her pictures I will be able to steal a few. :)

 Sawyer's smash cake was a sugar-free & egg-free apple spice cake with sugar-free cream cheese icing. I will be completely honest with you, this icing was very difficult to work with. Because it doesn't contain any sugar at all, it basically defies all cake decorating rules. :) Knowing how difficult it would be to work with, I'm pretty pleased with the outcome, because I didn't think I would be able to get it even remotely smooth or get it to pipe to create any decorations at all.

Red velvet mini cupcakes with cream cheese icing. These were mushroom and moss cupcakes. I had quite a few questions about what the "moss" was made out of. :) Don't is completely edible.
